My server has a MS SQL server 2000 database engine. Recently I installed another database engine (MS SQL server 2005). I've also "upgraded" all of the database instance.
The way I did this is to:
- Create a backup of database instance from MS SQL server 2000
- Import that instance into the 2005.
So now my application would be using the 2005 instance instead of the 2000. My question is, given that the old database instance is very big (about 20GB), can I delete it to free up the disk space?
